Captain Chris Duryea
There is no other fishery like the one we have here on the East End of Long Island. Chris has been targetting Striped Bass and Bluefish all of his life. He began fishing the waters of Shinnecock Bay and the Peconics with his dad when he was a kid. After moving out to Sag Harbor full time, he bought a boat and began to heavily fish these same waters and has passed on his knowledge to his two kids who have become avid fishermen as well. As a United States Coast Guard Masters Captain, Chris has been on the waters of Peconic Bay to Montauk for most of his life and is very knowledgable of the local waters and the fisheries it holds. When not running the boat, Chris is a Lieutenant in the New York City Fire Department and is also a Sag Harbor Village Harbormaster.
Captain Ryan Duryea
Growing up just a short walk from the bay, it was only natural Ryan would be attached to the water and everything it has to offer. Living close to the beach and local fishing spots sparked Ryan's passion for fishing at a young age. Between fishing, surfing and swimming he has gained a true love for being on the water and for everything it offers. His fishing experience began catching schoolie bass and bluefish in the Peconics and has well over a decade of extense fishing experience on the east end. While being a full time college student athlete and certified ocean lifeguard, Ryan is a United States Coast Guard OUPV Six Pack Captain and is an experienced boater that has extensive knowledge of the local fisheries.
Get Bent, is a 2011 28' Regulator. Powered by twin Yamaha 300s, the boat cruises at 35mph, making the trip to the fishing grounds, fast and comfortable. It is the perfect platform to fish in the local bays as well as venture offshore in pursuit of tuna. The boat can hold 6 passengers max but 1-4 while fishing is ideal.
Our fishery begins in April as schools of Striped Bass begin to infiltrate the bays, creeks and estuaries. Following the bass, bluefish, fluke, weakfish and porgies filter in as the water warms. During the Fall months as the "Fall Run" begins, False Albacore and Bonito begin to migrate as well as the bass and bluefish that begin to gorge on the schools of baitfish in the area. Spring and Fall offer some of the most exciting fisheries the East End has to offer, while summer provides fun opportunity as well to catch a variety of species.
April-June: Striped Bass, Bluefish, Weakfish and Porgies. Lots of options for fishing and variety of species during these months
June-August: Porgies are abundant in the bays, while Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke and Seabass action heats up towards the East in Montauk and Gardiners Bay
September-November: Striped Bass, Bluefish, False Albacore and Bonito begin their migration south. One of the most exciting times of the year to fish.
